Friends of Palaeontology

The Friends of Palaeontology are ROM members fascinated by fossils and intrigued by evolution. We are engaged in the story of life on earth, enjoying lectures featuring research and fieldwork updates, new specimens, exhibitions, events and site tours.

Additional Family events for Junior Palaeontologists include hands-on and craft activities.
